The running lights and tail lights work but no headlights on my 1994 Buick Skylark Custom. What is wrong?

Hey Dan , do you have a volt meter ? Pull head lamp bulb , with lights on check for battery voltage on tan wire left headlamp an lite green right side headlamp ! If there is no voltage back track to headlamp switch , which means pulling the plastic cover from around the upper steering column ! check for battery voltage at the Orange wire in connector # 1 , that is voltage supply to the headlamp switch ! Power going in an no power coming out with the switch in the headlamps on position means your switch is bad !

Battery not charging

1) You must do some easy proofing Run the car and take out the positive terminal, if the car motor goes out, the generator is faulty.
2) See the diagram attached. God bless you

The car will not run and when i turn the ignition it only clicks. I tried jump starting it but it won't do anything. When i turn the lights on their powerful and not dim a t all i bought a new battery two...

You are going to have to put a new battery in, or charge the battery in it now up to11-13 volts. The computer is not getting voltage, and I suspect that the battery cables, possibly the neg cable is corroded inside the clamp and not allowing enough voltage to get to the starter or the computer. Take the neg and pos cable clamps off and using a piece of sandpaper or emery cloth clean the inside of the clamps, and the outside of the battery pole. re-assemble and try to charge the battery up. The jump start should work now, but be careful that you have the correct pole to pole as a reversal would destroy the diodes in your alternator.

1985 the volt light comes on when you turn off the ignition. It stays on and drains the battery

It's your alternator , faulty diodes and usually a replacement is more economical than trying to repair , ie off the shelf replacement and no down time ! Good luck

1994 Buick Skylark overheating

This vehicle uses a 195 degree thermostat. Standard operating temperature is about 210. If the vehicle was running 160 before then the thermostat was probably stuck open before.
